Ye Olde Arrest Meter would’ve been due for a resetting but, alas, the ticker ’tis no more.
The latest college football player who would’ve triggered a reset back to double zeroes is Joshua Moore, with the Austin American-Statesman reporting that the Texas wide receiver was arrested earlier this month and charged with unlawful carrying of a weapon. No details of what led to the arrest have been divulged.
The football program is aware of the off-field development involving Moore, who has been practicing with the rest of his UT teammates since the incident.
“We have talked with him and his family and are handling this internally at this time, but will continue to monitor the legal process,” head coach Tom Herman said according to the American-Statesman. “We will determine any further action upon the completion of that process.”
A four-star 2018 signee, Moore played in the first six games as a true freshman before going down with a season-ending injury. In that half-season of work, the 6-1, 180-pound receiver totaled 53 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions.
